March Challenge from ♥♥ Serious About Series ♥♥ on goodreads

Kung Hei Fat Choy! link

Welcome to the Year of the Sheep. In recognition of Chinese New Year (celebrated in February) we're doing a challenge based on the Chinese Zodiac. I'm simplifying this a great deal, so I hope no one is offended! A Zodiac sign is assigned to you in Chinese Astrology according to the year of your birth. There are 12 signs which rotate in a cycle. This month we're asking you to pick books with a hero or heroine who matches the personality strengths associated with the signs. Pick as few as 2, or as many as 12 different signs...and as many books as you like for each choice. Here they are:
